HOUSTON– In the aftermath of the Las Vegas attack, police from all over the country and even overseas gathered at a law enforcement conference in downtown Houston and shared their thoughts on the deadly shooting.

“My heart goes out to the people in Vegas,” said Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo, who has friends in the Las Vegas Police Department.

“When you see this kind of thing happens it saddens you, because these people were doing what we love a lot and that’s listening to music at a concert and having a great time and suddenly some mad man opens fire from a perch up in a hotel room,” Acevedo said.

Ian Hicks of the London Metropolitan Police Department echoed Acevedo’s sentiments  stating “My heart goes out to the people of Las Vegas, it must be awful and I really can’t comprehend it.”
